Patient Financial Services
Benewah Community Hospital prides itself in providing excellent healthcare to its patients and takes the responsibility of providing easy to understand billing statements. Our billing office is dedicated to assist you with all your billing needs.
The hospital and clinic is contracted with a large range of insurance companies, which gives you more options when seeking medical care. Benewah Community Hospital makes every effort to collect payment from your insurance company before billing the patient. If the insurance company denies payment or leaves a balance due, this becomes the responsibility of the patient.
Most insurance companies often have co-pays or deductibles. These are due at the time of service unless payment arrangements have been made prior to services being rendered.
Your statement from Benewah Community Hospital will include services provided by the hospital, including room and nursing charges, x-rays, laboratory tests, medical supplies, medication, and oxygen. In most cases, you will receive a separate bill for the professional services provided by your provider or surgeon, which will come from St. Maries Family Medicine or from another provider’s office.
You will receive a statement approximately every 30 days. Balances older than 120 days with no contact or payments will be transferred to a collection agency to pursue collection. If you need payment assistance, please contact us at 208-245-7095.
The billing office is dedicated to help you. If you have questions about your statement, call 208-245-7095, to talk with our educated staff Monday through Friday, 8:00a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
